Re: apt and upgrades



Unfortunately, RHN only provides the most basic packages and is rather slow
in updating to new versions. Therefore, I use Synaptic with apt4rpm and it
works great. There are lots of essential packages available, like sodipodi
or xine. Ximian Red Carpet is also cool (e.g., for installing their new
Evolution or OpenOffice 1.1). I hope that RHLP will be more reactive and
complete. RHLP seems like a good move to me.

André
